    He's been in combat. I think he's got his bonafides with respect to combat implements. Don't wake him up wearing a table cloth on your head, offer cous cous and falafel for breakfast, and try to work the phrase "Snake and nape, on your pos" into a sentence at least once a day. He'll feel right at home. <g>

    Might just be me, but former Marine? No such thing. Back on topic, to the OP, I thank your brother for serving and still serving. I see that he has already been dropped at the airport, did you play the jokes you planned on? I wouldn't play any jokes on anyone who has seen combat, especially someone who has seen recent combat. You might not like the reaction. OMO.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    not physical pranks...but more goofy stuff like set his computer up to download Brokeback mountain and barbara streisand music.

    I bet it was, I can still picture my first night shooting in the Army using tracers. Now that was cool!

    my favorite part is when the muzzle flash lights the whole area up at the end showing the shooters figure.
